Let me bounce this one off of you for a little back and forth:

X two curves in back for example

And as before - show your math for full credit.

Ok, so before we all start going insane, could you clarify ...

Are we looking at 2 lines, or just what's in bold? Thanks! =)

The riddle/word puzzle is contained entirely in the one line in bold.

This one line represents a phrase not unfamiliar. Each word or two (generally speaking) of the puzzle corresponds to a letter or two (generally speaking) spelling out the answer. Other descriptors can be thrown in refering to the relation of individual letters.

Also, will grade work as we go along.

For example might be "eg" or "ie"

two curves maybe ( + ) = "o"

Part of your first line is relevent.

two curves yields "+" so no to that one.

the "S" but you're wasting too many words in the riddle.

I kinda had a feeling I was.

Wow, I don't think I can even wrap my brain around this and even begin to try and solve it!

in = N

back for = before 4 = 3?

example = are = R?

Please play along. I think/hope this one will start to reveal itself. I'll be answering each correct letter at a time. It's alot easier, of course, to work backwards from the answer. Edited by plainglazed

X - cross, T? (or just an X)

in - N

back, behind, butt, end

for, fore/afore, before

example - ex/X, ie/I (eye/aye?), eg-egg -> something else?

As per normal I can't see the whole, merely ideas of the parts.

line two is correct in = "N" and that last line of yours contains the same relevent tidbit as before; just needs the correct manupulation.

Sorry I missed your post. I type too slowly.

N is correct. The rest is not. Good thoughts all, none the less. You're definitely getting the jist.

ok I will give it a try, don't laugh!

I am thinking

X = Cross = T

two curves = S

in back = N ??

for example = ex

I just really don't know, but i am trying to play along!

Nothing wrong with your logic. I'd say you're understanding is excellent.
X and T(ee) often interchange; but not this time.

Well thank you. And that leaves me with 2 questions, since I am new to this kind of riddle.

1:Would that spoiler mean the other parts I had were correct?

2:Will the letters be jumbled or in order once solved?

If answering is too big of a hint, no need, I can just keep chuggin a long!

1:"not this time"

2:the letters will read left to right as presented unless there is a descriptor that directs otherwise. Excelent question.

ex is not right. S and N have been established a correct.

X = ex, former, previous?

R ahead of S ... which could lead to RSN (arson), so I guess probably not ... well crap.

But previous/before *could* still be good.

X could be "error" or "wrong" or something of that nature.

Now I'm confused

(Part of answer from "X") - S - N - (part of answer from "back for example") And one undeterrmined "tidbit" from previous posts
